[mapguide-users] Integration with Google Earth

If you save that file -mapagent.fcgi in fact you will save the output of 
this module, i.e. the requested kml/kmz file. However it might be 
windowed this kml file - it will contain part of the layer and will try 
to open it dynamically when you move around in Google Earth, but this 
will for sure contain the kml file.
The simplest perhaps will be to send me these files. You can zip and 
send to my e-mail - I will use ArcMap to convert - it takes a couple of 
minutes.Please add some info about coordinate system. ArcMap is an ESRI 
product, and is not free. AT ALL!
